“Dreams of Dali”- Walk inside a Dali painting

Virtual tour in schilderij Salvador Dali – “Archeological Reminiscence of Millet’s Angelus”

“One day it will be officially admitted
that reality is an even greater illusion
than the world of dreams”
Salvador Dali

“A true artist is not one who is inspired,
but one who inspires others”
Salvador Dali

 

“Dreams of Dali”, the 360-degree video , drops you into the world of Dalí’s
1935 canvas “Archeological Reminiscence of Millet’s Angelus” an homage to an
earlier work (Jean-François Millet’s painting, “The Angelus”) which enjoyed
enormous popularity during Dalí’s youth. The late 19th century painting depicts
a peasant couple standing in a field with their heads bowed in prayer. For many
it was a sentimental work, but for Dalí’ it was troubling, with layers of hidden
meaning, which he explored through daydreams and fantasies.”

 

As the artist himself put it, “I surrendered myself to a brief fantasy
during which I imagined sculptures of the two figures in Millet’s ‘Angelus’
carved out of the highest rocks.” His formidable imagination converted
that mid-19th-century image of rural hardship and piety into the moonlit
desert landscape through which “Dreams of Dalí” flies you.
